What Does a Kitchen Remodel Really Cost?

Average kitchen remodel cost

In 2016, the estimated average kitchen remodel will cost just shy of $20,000. Of course, this depends on how significant your remodel will be: If you choose to refinish cabinets rather than replace them, don’t plan on moving any walls or plumbing/gas lines, and will generally be revamping your kitchen rather than overhauling it you may spend closer to $10-$15,000. On the other hand, if you need to redo the entire layout of your York kitchen and invest in all new appliances, a York kitchen remodel can approach or even exceed $40,000. When planning a York kitchen remodel, it’s important to decide what you are comfortable spending and then plan your upgrades according to what you can afford.

Where does all that money go?

The National Kitchen and Bath Association estimate the cost breakdown for an average kitchen remodel as follows:

  • 29% of the budget is spent on cabinetry and associated hardware
  • Installation accounts for 17% of the total cost
  • 14% is spent on appliances and ventilation
  • Countertops cost 10% of the total budget
  • 7% is spent on flooring
  • Lighting and walls/ceilings count for 5% each
  • Doors/windows and faucets/plumbing account for 4% each
